Maggie (Elise Gatien) warns Roman that the townsfolk can’t be trusted.
In Episode twelve, Roman (Avan Jogia) discovered that, when the two pieces of the meteorite are assembled, the souls of everyone nearby (except for Roman) are detached from their bodies, enabling them to move about and even enter bodies other than their own. Roman used this feature of the meteorite to restore Abigail to her own body, and to rescue Val from the clutches of Deputy Norm. This time, Dr. Barker (Kandyse McClure) devises a scheme to chase the invading ghosts back to their place of origin. Four volunteers would discorporate and, using Billy’s near-death experiences as a guide, try to “re-open death’s door”. Continue reading →
Paolo (Andrew Moxham) is missing. He dropped by to fix Sophia the Mortician‘s generator and that was the last anybody saw of him. Sophia (Sharon Taylor) popped out of a pod at the end of the previous episode right after the pod ate Bake Sale Carol (Kathryn Kirkpatrick). Pod-modified Sophia tried to throw Father Dan into another pod, but the priest has a tolerance for pod-induced euphoria, since he has been getting high that way for quite some time. He escapes and burns down the house (which belonged to Dottie, who died in episode 1.6.) Continue reading →
Kristin Lehman as Marilyn on the set of Ghost Wars with Avan Logia and Vincent D’Onofrio. She also directs two episodes.
Residents of the remote Alaskan town of Port Moore believe they are being tortured with their own secrets by a plague of ghosts. The hauntings bring newfound popularity to the local priest, Father Dan Carpenter (Vincent D’Onofrio), as many townspeople turn to religion for their salvation. There is a pragmatic young physicist, Dr. Landis Barker (played by Kandyse McClure), who works for a company called Lambda and believes science holds the key to the mystery. And Port Moore’s one (reluctant) psychic, Roman Mercer (Avan Jogia), whom no one in town likes, suddenly finds a use for his ability to speak to spirits.
The four main characters each take a different philosophical approach to the unusual phenomena plaguing the town. Mercer is a believer in the paranormal, Father Carpenter comes at things from a conventionally religious point of view, and Dr. Barker attacks the problem scientifically. A fourth (somewhat ill-defined) perspective is provided by Doug Rennie (Meat Loaf), a handyman who is apparently not a very nice person, and who takes great delight in bullying Roman Mercer.
